The term Holistic Skincare is popping up everywhere. This is a good thing right?
In my opinion the answer is Yes and No! I say this because the term Holistic Skincare is often misinterpreted or is used as the latest catchy marketing term meant to get consumers to purchase new products. The public is then mislead, as Holistic Skincare is used as a synonym for luxurious, overpriced, organic, natural, and free skin products.
Holistic skincare is not just another term for organic skincare, and it’s not a new trend. It is a complete Lifestyle and a very comprehensive approach to health and balance that has nothing to do with buying exclusively natural products.
As A Licensed Beauty Professional
I do believe in scientific foundations when it comes to skincare and I love how technology offers new and very effective solutions in western medicine, health, and cosmetics. I also believe a holistic approach to skincare is essential.
So What Does This Mean?
A Holistic approach is simply approaching your health as a whole, not just part of it. The philosophy is that these parts are interrelated and interdependent ~BALANCE~ and thus health can only be achieved if all the parts are working properly.
Just like in Ayurveda, looking for or treating the cause as opposed to simply just treating symptoms. It acknowledges that our environment and inner imbalances can have serious consequences for our health, thus we should take all things into consideration if we would like to restore balance.
